How are you any better? You are simply repeating the Obama and Democratic talking points
Actually I did no such thing. You have a political agenda and you want to see the Obama bogey man everywhere so you do.
- About 10% of the American population consists of people like me - we are wealthy enough to buy insurance, but we voluntarily choose NOT to buy insurance.
Ok, so this tells me three things.
1) You are, or think you are, rich. You like things the way they are and will go through any contortions to convince yourself and others to keep them that way. In short, you are just acting out of your own self-interest.
2) You have never had a major illness. If you think 10% of Americans can absorb the cost you are frankly delusional or completely unacquainted with what the uninsured are charged. Go ahead, risk a kidney transplant. Maybe you can afford it and the 80k a year (for the rest of your life because you will never get insurance again) you'll need for ongoing drugs.
3) You have no idea what the top 10% can afford. If you were serious you would admit that maybe the top 2 of people could risk this. Peope, even those making 100k+ per year would be out of their freaking minds not to get insurance.
And then there's the many people that checked "I'm not insured" on the Census mail-in poll, but in reality they are insured - by Medicaid or SCHIP or SSI. About 20%.
Oh, the very scientific "many people" on which your statistic are based. Right. How could anyone doubt that?
And, of course, you fully supported SCHIP, SSI and Medicaid. You're just that kind of caring guy. So why not just transfer those funds into a public option then? Harder to nickle and dime and screw people in committee in the future, eh?
Why do you want to ignore their opinion - do you not believe in democracy?
Fine. Let's have a special election next month on health care - yes or no. What? What? Oh, you shut up pretty quick didn't you?
Like Grandma Pelosi who called us "unAmerican" because we dared to speak up at townmeetings.
Actually you just looked like a bunch of jack asses. Please, speak out more.
Ok, I can see you have your little no-nothing friends modding me down so good luck living your "rich" life. Don't forget to add in the costs of private protection for your family. Since you want to live in a Mexico City society you;ll have to try and survive in such a society.
